OK, here we go again! To do the 9's table, there is a trick to learn to make it easy! Remember the 9's trick we had for addition? Now there is a 9's trick for multiplication. Nine is a tricky number! Let me show you and see if you catch on.

Step back one from that number,

Then use the number that would add to that number to make 9

Hmmmmmm.... That sounds complicated. But when we put it into practice with real numbers, let's see if it makes any more sense!

Step back one from the 5 . . . that gives you 4

Then use the number that would add to 4 to make 9 . . . that would be 5

So the answer is 45.

Let's try one more together, then I'll let you do some on your own!

Step back one from the 3 . . . that gives you 2

Then use the number that would add to 2 to make 9 . . . that would be 7

So the answer is 27.

See how easy that is? You try a few!

9 x 2 = | Step back one from 2... | The answer is... | 29 18 16 |

9 x 4 = | Step back one from 4... | The answer is... | 94 46 36 |

9 x 6 = | Step back one from 6... | The answer is... | 54 69 96 |

9 x 7 = | Step back one from 7... | The answer is... | 63 97 67 |

9 x 8 = | Step back one from 8... | The answer is... | 98 97 72 |

9 x 9 = | Step back one from 9... | The answer is... | 99 81 89 |

That set is so easy it's almost TOO easy! You are doing great!

Let's GO ON to the next set!
